WATCH RECORDED FORUMS:
Candidate Forums the League Way
In an effort to foster civic engagement and provide needed information to voters, League members host hundreds of candidate forums and presentations across the country each year to provide straightforward information on candidates and ballot issues. Through both print and online resources, we equip millions of voters with essential information about the election process in each state, including polling place hours and locations, ballot information, early or absentee voting rules, voter registration deadlines.
Candidate forums are one of the only opportunities voters have, to listen to candidates offer more than just a brief sound bite. Forums provide an opportunity to hear what candidates are saying, and to form your own opinions of the candidates, based on your own observations. They also provide an opportunity to become engaged in the political process by using critical and analytical abilities in examining the candidates. (Adapted from LWVUS)
The League of Women Voters of Palo Alto partners with local neighborhood associations, educational and advocacy organizations, parent organizations, and diverse community groups to sponsor Candidate Forums. If you are interested, please contact us.
